He really wasn't struggling. He was just playing the act of being beaten down. Had he been struggling he would have been helped off I believe. I really liked the Shaved head/semi Mohawk look he had. I think that look would have been much better for his character back in the day. He looked like he was in pretty good shape as well. One thing Mark can do is play the struggling really well of his character.
BTW apparently Vince doesn't like when people ask him about <The American Badass Undertaker. He apparently hated it and considering how popular the Undert
****Yeah, probably. Who would he face though? Cody Rhodes is who I would want to see, but it would probably be Punk or Orton. ****
I have a feeling it would be Orton or Punk. Neither have much in the way of a feud or storyline after WM28 now. I just read that he was being brought in to possibly face Undertaker in WM29, which would be possibly Undertaker's final match.
My quick thoughts:
- I hope when they looked at the sea of people who supported Daniel Bryan before the match started that someone realized just how big of a mistake they had made.
- Orton-Kane was a decent Raw match that I couldn't care less about on Wrestlemania.
- A valiant attempt to destroy the credibility of the IC title by giving it to someone who destroyed the credibility of the U.S. Title 8 years ago.
- Women wrestled. The champ got pinned by a celebrity. Worst first hour of a Wrestlemania that I can remember.
- Glad the show picked up in that HIAC match. Brilliant emotional psychology, which became an underlying theme for the rest of the show. Terrific stuff. Better than their first one, which was great as well.
- Solid 12-man tag. Remember kids: When you're in wrestling, never get over with the fans by doing something yourself. Ryder eating the pin was too predictable.
- Where HHH-Taker had emotional psychology, Punk-Jericho had mental psychology. And like the HIAC, it worked in brilliant fashion. MOTN from a pure wrestling standpoint, and just incredible back-and-forth. It built very well, gave you the right false-finishes, then ended with a terrific bit of psychology with Punk positioning himself away from Jericho's knees. I could watch that match many times.
- Geez.....Never saw that finish coming. Good match. Off-the-charts electricity. Unexpected yet brilliant finish with, again, great psychology. Cena cared more about embarrassing The Rock, like he had during their promos together, than trying to win the match at that moment. And like a legend would, Rock capitalized.
B+ for me. Would have been at least an A- to an A if they gave Sheamus-Bryan time to work, regardless of the result. They both deserved better.
By the way, I called my momma. Had no choice. That was awesome.
